My once-a-week posts have halted because I have hit a creative block that I cannot get around! So, here is what I have been up to lately…
I’ve been daydreaming & thinking about my goals in life. For the past few years I have been conscientiously making resolution lists that include things to enrich my life and push me out of my very small comfort zone but also remind me to leave the world a better place than I found it.
Lately, I’ve been focusing on my career & I had a lot of questions for myself:
- Am I where I want to be?
- Is the work I’m doing fulfilling?
- Am I happy?
- Do I get paid what I’m worth?
- Am I meeting my full potential?
- What is my dream job?
Some people can answer those questions quickly & with ease. I am NOT one of those people. I have so many different interests & so many different things that bring me joy. How can I settle for just one thing?
For example, I create content for this blog & my etsy shop. Then I promote it using Twitter, Facebook, & Instagram. But my day job is dealing with numbers!
Do you see the conundrum? I have this logical mind that needs some creative release!
So what is the ‘perfect’ job for me?
I put together the main things I want from a company:
Then I just started researching relentlessly. I found that start-up companies tend to promote their core values & work environment more than your traditional businesses.
Why do they do this? Because they encourage a balanced life & they want their employees to be passionate and hard-working individuals. And let me tell you, I am SOLD on that idea. The only problem with startups (for me) is that most of them are in the tech industry & I am definitely not a coder or programmer or software developer.
So alas, I am still working toward my goal of finding the perfect job. I just have to find the right position & company because I know that I am capable of doing amazing things & I want to do amazing things. And, I am so grateful & thankful to have such great supporters around me to keep me going & keep me positive though the ups and downs.
Finally, here is my advice for all my readers that are in a job that isn’t fulfilling or you’re ready to move on: Figure out what you want your life to look like, know your strengths & turn your weaknesses into opportunities to learn and grow, research what is around you because there are so many more jobs & companies than you think, & work your ass off to reach your goals!
